RIP Rick Wolfe

Richard Harrison "Rick" Wolfe
WOLFE, RICHARD HARRISON "RICK" - went "up home to live in green pastures" on the morning of December 15, 2007. Rick was preceded in death by his parents, Dana and Marie B. Wolfe, Sr.; and a brother, Mark W. Wolfe. Left to cherish his memory: brother, Dana F. Wolfe, Jr. and sister-in-law, Connie L. Wolfe; nephews, D. Forest Wolfe and Matthew T. Wolfe; and niece, Laura Wolfe. Rick was a 20 year employee of Pick'n'Grin, where he was manager, teacher, technician, salesman, engineer, musician, family member, and confidant to all. He also was a long time member of the Macdaddies, Crawdaddy, Delta Flyers, and Body Heat, and was the on-call bass player of choice for every band in Knoxville that needed a fill-in. He was rock solid in his musicianship and friendship. Rick's knowledge and experiences far exceeded his 53 years. With his recordings, teachings, and love of music and musicians, he has left behind a legacy in Knoxville's music scene that has reached well beyond the city's boundaries. Special thanks to Grace Robin and Jeanne Lane for being wonderful caregivers to Rick during his illness. The family will receive friends on Thursday, December 20 in the Kingston Room at Highland Memorial Funeral Home, from 7-9 p.m. Graveside services will be at Highland Memorial Cemetery on Friday, December 21 at 11:00 a.m. You are encouraged to share your thoughts and memories of Rick at Highland Memorial (Bearden) 588-0567.
